In part I of this story, I described a spirit that may have followed my stepmom from her old house to the house my Dad currently resides in. The activity has died down some since my stepmom passed away, but there has still been some interesting stuff happening.
I still have ominous feelings when I'm alone in the basement, as if something is down there watching me. I tried to sleep down there ONCE, and I won't do it again. I can't pinpoint it, but there's just something unsettling about that basement.
My Dad has related a couple of experiences he had. The first happened when he was home alone. He had put 3 or 4 photo frames in the closet, on top of each other. That afternoon, he heard a crash coming from that closet. Upon examination, he did find one of the frames had broken, but it was a frame in between the other ones. The pile was in the same position he'd left it, and hadn't fallen.
The second experience is what we all sort of wanted to see, but were afraid to see it. My Dad was in bed with his girlfriend. She was asleep. He went to turn over, and saw a black shadow in the shape of a man walk past his door. It definitely freaked him out, and he never told his girlfriend, as he didn't want to frighten her.
Another notable experience happened in 2007 after my stepmom's mother passed on. She passed away in the back bedroom, on hospice. We were having a pool party that summer, and my cousin, who was a teen at the time, went inside to change into her swimsuit. She came running back outside after she'd changed, frantically telling us that she had seen my stepmom's mother standing in the hall near her room.
The last thing I want to talk about was a cool EVP my Dad caught. It was a few years after we lost my stepmom. He decided to leave the recorder on one day when he went to work. The EVP he caught made him so emotional that he called me immediately. When I came over and listened, I gasped. I could faintly hear a female voice saying "I love you." We are convinced it was my stepmom. She hasn't tried to communicate since, so we think her spirit moved on.
